Meet Munzee Munzday: Delana
Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. Today we are going to get to know a member of the team who has been around for a while. Please welcome Delana!
Name and Title:
Where are you from?
Born in Kansas city, MO, but I’ve lived in Texas for most of my life.
Tell us about yourself:
I was lucky enough to find the love of my life early in life. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart, Brendan, for 2 1/2 years now. We live in Little Elm with our amazing dog Ellie. We just moved back to Texas after living in California while Brendan was in the Marine Corps. We really loved our life and the family we created while living out there, but we’re very excited for this new chapter of life. My husband is obsessed with getting another dog now that we have a house (we’ll see), and we are planning on starting a family soon.
I actually have a full time job, and now do Eventzee only part time, but still love it and working with all my Munzee and FT team members as much as I can. I love to cook and bake and play with my dog. I love rewatching movies (it drives my husband crazy), and going to the movies for date night. I miss seeing the ocean every day, but I don’t miss that cold Pacific Ocean water.
How long have your worked for Munzee?
Just hit my 4 year mark! They haven’t found a reason to get rid of me yet!
How did you find Munzee?
I heard about Munzee through my dad actually, because he knew Rob, Matt, and TJ through a local hockey team. And funnily enough, I was going to school for Culinary Arts, and I was going to work in the kitchen for the marketplace (RIP Munzee Marketplace). So what started out as me working in the marketplace part time turned into me running the kitchen, then managing the store when the kitchen closed (RIP again LOL), then helping out with Eventzee when I could spare a few hours a week, then Eventzee full time, and then to part time when I moved out to California. I’ve worn many hats within Munzee, and now Freeze Tag!
What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
Although I’m not as much involved in Munzee as everyone else is, and I don’t work in the office anymore, I have never felt out of place. The team and the players have always welcomed me (even if no one ever knows what I do haha). When I lived in Cali, I went to one of the birthday events, and I knew people from previous MHQ bashes and other events who I talked to like we’d known each other forever. The family that Munzee has created and Freeze Tag has built upon is amazing, and I love being a part of it.
What are some of your other hobbies?
I love yoga, and I’m finally starting to get back into it now that I have the time and space for it. My husband has gotten into wood working, so we’ve got lots of projects keeping us busy now on the weekends. Hockey and football are also major loves of my life. Now that we’re back home, I’m excited to be able to watch games with my family again. Eating might not be a hobby, but I love doing it. Trying new foods, flavors, and recipes are some of my favorite things to do.
Famous last words?
